Subject: Surprise!
After experiencing the original "Natural Born Killers" (complete with rattlesnake bites) I set out to find who was responsible for the camera work; the art director, perhaps a currently renowned cameraman in his fledgling film, or whomever it might be that had compelled me to harvest 17 screen captures of camera angles that were shockingly creative. Please keep in mind I was so excited that this crappy looking film turned out to be amazing, I took screen caps even though I OWN THE GOD DAMN THING!

Helen Hovey's only film, and she was good, but not so good you'd think she had a global fan club, but they're out there. This was a one time shot for art director Mark Von Berlinger, and his faith in the film may be reflected in the fact he didn't use his real name, went with Von Berlineer instead.

It SEEMS like everyone has gone out of their way to keep you from watching this film unless yer a B Movie fan, someone that gets a kick out of poor quality offerings referred to as entertainment--that would be me. But I'm also a complete film addict if they follow certain criteria: If they're good, they'd better be really good, and if they're bad, they'd better be over-the-top bad or I'll turn it off in the middle.

This is an amazingly well done film, low budget, sure, but the art direction is surprising at times, and far outreaching much of the films offered in the last 50 years in the creativity department.

Watch it. Watch Helen, watch for the wacko camera angles, watch for the handsome "Good guy" that is Eileen Wournous' twin brother.

This really is a break-thru film.
